a-men, soul bro-tha!!! i’m with you! enough of dwelling on the negative; we can get outselves into a tizzy in 5 minutes — i also love to put upbeat music on and get thru the day trying to make somebody else’s life a little happier and put a smile on their face with a fun email or whatever. or maybe forward a boomer alley video? thanks..a.
Thanks! That’s what I’ve been telling my friends and family! and they’ve been agreeing whole-heartedly!
My favs are:
Waiting On The World to Change ~John Mayer
I’m Yours ~Jason Mraz
Come On Get Higher ~Matt Nathanson
1,2,3,4 ~Plain White T’s
Daughters ~John Mayer
I’m not a boomer (my parents are) but I love your videos anyway!
Happy music on your IPOD is SOOOO important. I listen to mine while walking from station to office and I just love brass band music – it makes me feel like I’m marching and I find myself going “oompahpah” etc etc along with the music. Priceless! Try the soundtrack to the movie “Brassed Off”.
Now for some real boomer-type happy music (with YouTube links for those who are too young to remember):
I have my own feel-good CD too…. here a few more favs:
Bright Side of the Road– Van Morrisson
59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy)– Simon & Garfunkel
Our House– CSN
Recipe for Love– Harry Connick Jr.
Shower the People– James Taylor
All You Need Is Love– Beatles
Hear Comes the Sun– Beatles
And for the Boomers:
When I’m Sixty- Four– Beatles
